FRENZY

From September 1 through December 1, we will be reading for our themed issue, FRENZY. Please see our issue preview page for details on what we’re looking for. 

Before submitting, please review our submission guidelines.

Sonora Review is run entirely by graduate students in the MFA program at the University of Arizona. Sonora Review accepts submissions in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. We only accept unpublished work. Typical response time is three to six months. Please submit only once every six months.

Please submit work 1000 words or less. Due to their length and higher frequency of publication, these pieces will most often be published online, but may also be considered for publication in our print issues.

Sonora is excited about that which is, above all else, brave and inventive, be it fiction, creative non-fiction, poetically-slanted, or something in-between. We seek work that challenges convention - through form, through content, through voice. Show us the world as it is and it could be. Make us uncomfortable, thrilled. Make us understand something new.

We consider short memoir, personal essays, and other forms of contemporary creative nonfiction. We are fans of tight, thoughtful, gorgeous prose that makes us go ooooh ahhh and perhaps challenge the typical norms of the genre. Does your work bang around between poetry, essay and reportage? Bring it. If your work doesn't seem to fit in easy categories of classification, bring it. We're also fond of traditional essays that ask big questions or that examine the world in a way we may have missed. Bring your keen eye, your startling details and your unique voice. Stun us.
